A few months back I put together this Summer Berry Cheesecake Salad. Well, needless to say it has gone completely crazy on our site. It is already the #2 recipe of all time.

Our readers have enjoyed it so much that I though it was time to whip up a twist on the über popular recipe. I have been on a pudding kick lately. I tell you I have been testing several recipes with pudding as a surprise ingredient.

It is crazy how much pudding mix amps up the flavor of a recipe. So, when I was thinking of ways to twist up the cheesecake salad, I knew I needed to use pudding. It really kicks it up a notch.

I combined cream cheese, pudding mix and coffee creamer to create a spectacular rich and creamy cheesecake filling. In the fruit mixture, I squeezed fresh lemon juice over sliced strawberries and bananas. That prevents the bananas from browning, but it also gives the cheesecake salad a little brightness and zing!

This new summer salad is so good it is sure to take the place of your favorite fruit salad. And say goodbye to Aunt Ida's ambrosia salad and HELLO to Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad. The new queen of the summer picnic table.

We couldn't stop eating it, and you're going to go bananas over it too! <- Sorry, pun intended. I couldn't help myself.

Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad in a bowl, with a spoon

Helpful Tips to make Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad:

  • Do not pour all of the creamer into the cream cheese at once. It will get clumpy and no matter how long you beat it, it will stay that way. Trust me on this one.
  • If you have to substitute for the creamer, use 1 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
  • To make this ahead: prepare the cheesecake mixture and refrigerate in a bowl. Mix all of the fruit in a large bowl and refrigerate. Before serving, drain any excess liquid from the fruit and then fold the cheesecake filling into the fruit. Serve and enjoy!

What you will need to make Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad:

Enjoy!

Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad

Simple Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad recipe comes together with just 6 ingredients. Rich and creamy cheesecake filling is folded into luscious strawberries and sweet banana to create the most amazing, glorious fruit salad ever!
prep time: 15 MINScook time: total time: 15 mins

ingredients:

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant cheesecake pudding, unprepared
  • 1-1/4 cups Simply Pure Vanilla Coffee Creamer
  • 2 pounds strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 3 medium bananas, cut into coins
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

instructions

  1. In a medium tall bowl, using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese until it becomes smooth. It may bind up in the beaters, but continue as is and it will loosen up. Add dry pudding mix. Beat until well combined.
  2. With mixer running slowly add creamer to the cream cheese mix. Add it about a tablespoon at a time and then mix until it becomes a smooth mixture and all of the creamer has combined into the cream cheese. Continue until all of the creamer has been added to the cream cheese. Whip until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, combine sliced strawberries, banana coins and lemon juice. Stir until all the fruit is coated with lemon juice. Add cheesecake mixture to fruit. Gently fold cheesecake mixture into fruit.
  4. Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately.
DONNA'S NOTES:
  1. Do not pour all of the creamer into the cream cheese at once. It will get clumpy and no matter how long you beat it, it will stay that way. Trust me on this one. 
  2. If you have to substitute for the creamer, use 1 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
  3. To make this ahead: prepare the cheesecake mixture and refrigerate in a bowl. Mix all of the fruit in a large bowl and refrigerate. Before serving, drain any excess liquid from the fruit and then fold the cheesecake filling into the fruit. Serve and enjoy!

    11. Made this tonight for the first time and it definitely won't be the last. So creamy and I love the zing of the lemon flavor. Very light and delicious. Instead of coffee creamer, I used half and half and added the powdered sugar and vanilla. Same concept and it turned out great. Thanks for a wonderful and easy treat.

    4. It sounds to me as though the Crust will get soggy unless you serve it imediatlu.

    5. You could make the crust as a crumble for the top that would be really good.

    ReplyDelete

    1. If you wish to make it ahead, I would keep the fruit separate from the cheesecake mixture. The sweetness of the cheesecake mixture will help the strawberries macerate (which is tasty, but not pretty) so I eat pretty soon after making it.

  8. f you use blueberries strawberries and pineapple doe you have to use the lemon juice

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Rebeckah! The lemon juice is not required, but I love the way lemon juice makes cheesecake taste, so I would add it for a beautiful zip to the cheesecake salad. However, this Summer Berry Cheesecake Salad is perfectly delicious and it does not have lemon juice in it. http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2016/04/summer-berry-cheesecake-salad-recipe.html

      Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

    2. Lemon juice helps keep the bananas from turning brown. I put the bananas in the lemon juice before adding to the mixture.

    1. Jello makes a cheesecake pudding. I think it has an odd taste so I just use the vanilla pudding instead.

  30. Could one substitute yogurt for the cream and add the powdered sugar as recommended for heavy cream. A little more protein but less fat.

    1. Okay...I feel stupid. When your recipe called for coffee creamer, I assumed it was the "powered" coffee creamer. The recipe never said "liquid" coffee creamer! I ended up with a huge ball of dry stuff! I ended up adding a little of half and half "liquid" creamer. Was your recipe supposed to mean "liquid" coffee creamer?...

      Delete
    2. I thought the same thing

  33. in the receipt it calls for one 3.4oz package of pudding so i put in three one oz. packages. the batter is so so thick that i am going to have to add a lot more creamer. did i read the receipt wrong? hopefully it will work out. did i do something wrong?

  38. Should really add to the recipe that it is liquid creamer and not powdered. I went and bought dry creamer, now I have to go buy the liquid. Wish I would of known ahead of time. Glad I read the comments.
